Jeffrey “Silver Surfer” Gonzalez
Jeffrey “Silver Surfer” Gonzalez selected his ring name because his dance crew is “The Heroes.” He likes breakdancing and he is not a dancer by profession, but a 9th Grade Biology Teacher at Westbury High School. Jeffrey cares deeply for the wellbeing of all his students. He devotes time to improving his teaching strategies, helping students progress on their socioemotional skills, and discovering ideas on how to make science education fun and interesting.
Jeffrey, back in 2009, did some boxing for about three months in Hempstead’s Kennedy Memorial Park. When he heard about Fight for Charity and its charitable mission, he decided to volunteer, train, and get in the ring in November.
Jeffrey seeks to raise money for the American Cancer Society. “Training means I’ll be working towards my goal. Fighting in the Main Event means I have managed to reach my goal. And my goal is to help raise money that will aid in the fight against a disease that continues to take away the people we love,” Jeffrey explained.
Jeffrey is active in the Council for Unity and My Brother’s Keeper Programs that currently run in his Westbury School District.
He has a B.S. in Biological Sciences and Secondary Education, and a M.S. in Adolescence Education; Biology.
Jeffrey lives in West Hempstead.
